Camp Explore is a fun-filled summer of educational projects and field experiences based at FIU's Biscayne Bay Campus. Campers will be immersed in our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programming. Activities, labs, field games and crafts, and one field trip/week are paired with a recreational half-day of water activities including swimming, kayaking and snorkeling.
Each week of Camp Explore has a different theme and opportunities to explore South Florida's ecosystems through engaging activities and educational field trips. Missed up last year? Check out our camp photos!
